When Keeping Up with the Kardashians viewer Jerome Billingham sent a random tweet to Kim Kardashian, he couldn’t possibly have known what would happen next. But just a few years on, his life has changed significantly – all thanks to a simple three-word response from one of the most famous women in the world.
Thanks to the rise of social media in the 21st century, it’s easier than ever to get in touch with your favorite celebrities. But no matter how many times you tweet them, it’s very rare that those stars will actually respond. After all, they receive thousands of messages every day – and so, obviously, there’s a lot to sift through.
So 25-year-old Jerome Billingham found himself in a highly unusual situation back in 2013 after tweeting Kim Kardashian. At the time, Billingham – who lives in Louth, Lincolnshire in the U.K. – was working in a laundry factory.
